Do this in the fall. Spring bulbs in Pots: store the potted bulbs in an unheated garage or storage room. You'll need to water every few weeks since the pots won't have access to rainfall. In addition to small pots, pack bulbs "shoulder-to-shoulder" in big containers for an abundant display in spring. Toss aside the spacing recommendations so you can get as many bulbs into the container that will fit.
PLANT FOOD RECIPE. Instead of buying expensive plant food, I mix 2 tablespoons of Epsom salts in a gallon of water. I water my plants once a week with this solution. My plants love it, especially my Geraniums. Marj, Kentucky
Place upside down in cardboard box or paper bag.....cover with newspaper and store in garage, inside wall. Do not let plants freeze. Leave them in box 'till Spring when you replant them in fresh new soil (miracle grow) works well. Plant will start growing new leaves within a week. Do not cut any stems away for at least 6 weeks, plant will double in size.
Romaine LETTUCE on the deck. Leaf lettuces grow very quickly and in little space. If you succession plant, sowing seeds every week in a few different planters, you'll create a supply of greens that will be ready in a steady stream all summer. Greens like these are also good for sheltered decks or patios that don't get much sun, since lettuce doesn't like a lot of heat and will grow better during the summer in cool shade
